The Purpose of Our Existence


he purpose of our existence:

Before we consider our role as parents, we need to think of the purpose of our existence. As Muslims we turn to God to learn the truth of all matters. Allah Most High says in the Quran, “Verily I will put on this earth a vicegerent” and furthermore He says, “Verily, I have not created humans and jinn but they may worship me”. So, we exist to exalt the Creator and be the loving, principled guardians of creation, human and otherwise.
The Messenger, peace and blessings be upon him says, “No parent has granted his child a gift better than good character.” It follows that the purpose of parenting is that we help form a person that is qualified to carry out the role of vicegerent, or khilafa on earth, and that everything he or she does is a form of worship. Such an individual is one who will better this earth, benefit its inhabitants, and beautify their surroundings.
